Nothing attracts customers and welcomes employees more than a stunning commercial landscape and health shade trees. However, a commercial property will only thrive and remain healthy if there is nutrient-rich topsoil to nourish grass, plants, and trees. When soil is removed from the property due to high winds or water runoff, it can leave the soil depleted and make plants, grass, and trees more vulnerable to diseases and death.
Water is a vital part of our own health, and also the health of our lawns, gardens, and trees. Although there are studies and recommendations regarding our own personal daily water consumption, there can be confusion about how much water commercial properties, gardens, and trees actually need. Some of the watering confusion stems from differences in grass, plants, tree species, as well as which region or zone your commercial property is located.
Companies throughout the greater Houston area are often looking for strategic partnerships that can be fiscally beneficial with lower risk. One of the ways businesses can make a strategic partnership that offers a variety of financial and property benefits is by choosing to work exclusively with professional landscape and tree care companies. In today's blog post, we'll look at four reasons why companies can benefit by avoiding the amateur, mom-and-pop landscapers and tree crews and instead choosing safe, efficient and professional tree care and landscape service providers.
In Houston, our warm climate and longer growing season means commercial properties need much more landscape and tree care maintenance throughout the year. Unfortunately for some business owners, these landscape maintenance costs can have a significant impact on their annual budget. However, there are four ways that business owners can improve their commercial landscape budget without sacrificing their property's beauty, health and value.
Homeowners Associations, commonly known as HOAs, are the governing body of a neighborhood, community or complex, and are tasked with making and enforcing neighborhood rules and deed restrictions. In addition, HOAs are also responsible for ensuring that the neighborhood landscaping, common green space, and surrounding trees are maintained. Unfortunately, some Houston area HOA's make poor decisions regarding the landscape and tree maintenance of their community, damaging curb appeal and threatening property values.
Commercial property managers and property owners always want their land to look its best, both to ensure beauty and health, and also to protect financial investments. Choosing the right commercial landscape service provider is a crucial step since landscaping is one of the main focal points of a commercial property, and landscaping maintenance costs can represent a large portion of a property maintenance budget.
Commercial property owners and managers are often searching for ways to make their property more valuable, either by adding landscaping or offering amenities such as beautiful shade trees or tranquil water features.
In the busyness of everyday life, Houstonians often find themselves pulled in multiple directions in a given day, or have several things competing for their time and attention. For many business owners, the rampant cycle of demands and priorities can often result in project delays or people being ignored. For example, heavy demands for time and attention can lead to lower productivity, decreased sales, lackluster customer service, or poor maintenance of offices or commercial properties.
For commercial real estate owners and property managers, having steady streams of revenue is vital to the health and strength of their business, helping protect their long-term investment. However, another major component of owning or managing commercial real estate and properties is maintaining and improving property values.
Despite current economic woes across the U.S., Houston is one of the top cities in the country for job creation and business growth and development. As a result of our local economic boom, there is an influx of business construction and real estate development across the entire greater Houston area, particularly in The Woodlands, Sugar Land and West Houston. As commercial real estate develops across Houston, property owners are eager to highlight their properties and business parks to promote growth and stability.
